Weekly Wishlist #1

Thursday, 9 April 2015

I'm a avid window shopper, mostly out of necessity of being constantly skint rather than choice but neither the less, I spend a majority of my time wishing I could buy things. I used to do these fairly often on my last blog and whilst I can't promise I'll do one every week it does give me a valid excuse to procrastinate and browse the internet!



Since the weather has turned warmer, I've realised I have no summer clothes. I've lost over 80lbs since last year and all my clothes from last year and massive so I'm trying to find some nice, cheap summer outfits.

I'm a sucker for all things fox so I couldn't help but fall in love with this cute little case!

For those hardcore lush fans, you may remember when the melomint bar was first discontinued, it was then put onto the retro section of the website. It was one of my faves so when they then stopped the retro section I was devastated so I was so happy to see it back on there for a limited time.

Do I need to even justify these? Who doesn't love cute pjs?! I'm a sucker for anything Disney as it is but I love these as  I've got a soft spot for Daisy, and it's unusual to find something without the typical Minnie Mouse on it. 

I'm pretty much a makeup beginner... As in I wear makeup literally once in a blue moon. I don't even own a foundation right now as I smashed my last one just after Christmas... yes that's how rarely I wear it. However since I've began losing weight I've definitely taken more of an interest in m my looks, as shallow as that sounds, I do occasionally try and make an effort as of late. 

I have a perfectly good pair of Nike Roshe running trainers already, however there are so comfy and easy to run in, I'm already eyeing up my next pair, however at over £80 a pair, these will definitely be a wish list item for quite some time, no matter how cute the look! 
 
Like every other girl on the planet, I love a good candle. My fiancé is constantly frustrated to find yet another candle has made its way in the house, he doesn't quite understand that Yankee candles  are in fact crack. I smelt this one the other day and fell in love with it, however I don't have any money with me to pick it up and now I'm kicking myself for leaving it behind. As its limited edition I'm hoping I can snatch it up before it forever becomes 'the one that got away'.

20 random facts about me

Monday, 6 April 2015

Here I am again, restarting my blog for the 6 (I think) time, I can't promise I'll stick to it this time but here goes!

Anyway I love reading these types of posts as it gives a much better insight than the general 'about me' posts you see flying around and I just read Becky's over at Milkbubbletea and loved it so I thought I'd do mine!
1. My favourite TV show is The Office, even though I only watched it for the first time last year, I watched the entire series in a couple of weeks and I constantly rewatch it, it's my go to show to stick on when I don't have anything else to do. #dwangela

2. My favourite colour is purple, so much so I jokingly told my then boyfriend now fiancé when he did propose it would have to be with a purple engagement ring or I wouldn't marry him, he took my word for it and sure enough I have a purple ring 💜

3. I love animals and would fill my house with them if I could. I currently have 2 hamsters, Chip and Dale, and a 15 year old dog called Tia who I treat like my baby. She was my fiancée dog originally but she is now well and truly a mama's girl. 

5. I hate mornings and never seem to be able to wake up no matter how long I've been sleeping.

6. Florida is my favourite place in the world and we plan to get married there in hopefully 2017

7. I'm a huge disney fan and can rewatch the disney films forever. My favourite is the little mermaid but I won't deny ive been hit by the frozen mania as well!

8. When I was 7 and my brother was a few weeks old my appendix completely burst and all my intestines stuck together (gross I know) and I had to spend 4 weeks in hospital and ended up having 3 emergency surgerys because of it. My brother still jokes I did it on purpose to take the attention away from him being born. 

9. We are currently trying for our first baby, and I already know I'm going to be one of those crazy nervous mams! I've researched everything already and I think I know more about baby led weaning and co sleeping than any person should ever need to know...atleast I'll be prepared whenever the time comes. I've also had our first daughters name picked out since I was 13 and it's taken me 5 years to get Kris to agree to it, now he loves it.

10. I can't get to sleep unless I listen to ASMR (Google it if you don't know what it is!) it relaxes me so much. 

11. I love peanut butter and my favourite chocolate is the peanut butter Kitkat. 

12. I have a huge crush on Michelle Visage since I started binge watching Rupaul's drag Race on Netflix. I think she is absolutely gorgeous. 

13. My favourite film is House of 1000 Corpses, even always looks at me weirdly when I say that but I love it. I could probably recite it word for word and I eventually plan to get a baby tattoo in honour of it.

14. When I was little I had a rabbit who got killed by next doors dog and I only found out last year, until then I'd genuinly believed he had run away. 

15. I love a bath, and could honestly spend hours in there. I wind Kris up so much because I take my laptop in, leave it on the windowsill so I can watch Netflix and just constantly rerun the hot water to keep the bath warm. 

16. I never knock the lights on when I get up in the middle of the night for the toilet or to get a drink, I just do it all in the dark

17. I met my best friend when I was 15 as we had mutual friends but we didn't really like each other and just stopped seeing each other it was only when a we began working together at 19 did we become close and she's honestly my soul mate, more so than my fiancé. I don't know what I'd do without her. 

18. It took me 6 attempts to pass my driving test 🙈I used to get so nervous, I'd be fine all the way through and then mess up right at the end, my mother finally got me calming spray before my last test and it done the trick!

19. I have a little bit of a lisp and say the letter R funny, I'm really self conscious of it and hate when people mention it.  

20. When I was little my imaginary friend was a dog called Andrex (after the Andrex toiletspaper advert) Andy for short. My parents finally got me a Andrex puppy stuffed toy and I used to take it everywhere with me.
